EPT/ELM Placement Tests

EPT/ELM Placement Tests in English and Math

Prior to August 2017 the CSU required that each entering undergraduate, except those who qualified for an exemption, take the CSU Entry Level Mathematics (ELM) examination and the CSU English Placement Test (EPT) prior to enrollment. As of Spring 2018, these placement tests have been replaced by alternative assessments. See section on alternative assessments elsewhere in the policies.

Although the ELM/EPT are no longer offered, scores for students who previously took the ELM and EPT will be honored.
